Obama White House Dismiss Hannity and Beck as "Opinion", while Maddow and Olbermann Attend Obama Briefings - Video 10/20/09


Here is a video report on ABC's Jake Tapper confronting White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the White House's decision to attack Fox News as not being a real news organization. Tapper asked Gibbs why they were doing that and what gave them the right to do so. Gibbs eventually said, "That's our opinion." Gibbs made the comment in an "off-camera" White House briefing yesterday.

"It’s escaped none of our notice that the White House has decided in the last few weeks to declare one of our sister organizations “not a news organization” and to tell the rest of us not to treat them like a news organization. Can you explain why it’s appropriate for the White House to decide that a news organization is not one?"
In this report, Bret Baier says Gibbs singled out Hannity and Glenn Beck as "opinion shows." But Baier said the White House confirmed that MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann attended Monday's "off-the-record" briefing with President Obama.

The bottom line is, this White House is determined to punish any news organization or reporter who says or reports anything that does not please The One.

Why should anyone be surprised by the actions of the W.H. concerning its views on FOX?? It serves two purposes: 1) It tells FOX that it will have to ''moderate'' its coverage-if FOX ever wants to be accepted. 2) It serves notice to the other news organizations to ''keep-in-line-or-else''.
It's just politics-the Chicago way.
Nothing to see here folks...move along.

The Obama administration know that conservative radio and fox news are a threat to them, because they tell the truth...Know mater how many times they say they irrelevant and if that's the case which is not, they wouldn't be attacking them.

The best part about this is that Fox's ratings will go even higher. What happens when you put a spotlight on a good thing? Everyone wants to see it. This joke's on you Obama.
